What is NIS?
NIS is an inclusive school community serving the needs of students with various gifts and talents, embracing a diversity of language, culture, and personal identity. Guided by the framework of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, our talented educators challenge students to question the answers and stretch their imaginations, empowering them to think creatively and critically, pursue lifelong learning, and contribute positively to the global community.
Whether a recent graduate, a long-ago alumni or a former NIS parent, the special bond that keeps the NIS community together is strong. Hear what they have to say . . .
I am sincerely happy to have transferred here. NIS opened many opportunities and allowed me to meet many people that have shaped me into a different, but better person.
NIS is a wonderful, diverse group of students that allows you to really get a chance to view other cultures and lifestyles.
We were a part of the NIS family for almost three years. NIS is more than an educational institution - we saw it as a small community where expat families bonded and emerged into the Japanese traditions. The atmosphere was always warm and welcoming to students and their families. Our son spent some wonderful years in NIS, made great friends, and the teachers provided for an unlimited growth potential. We always felt welcomed to address concerns or feedback on his classroom progress. We believe his time at NIS helped to better prepare him for more challenging work ahead, and since our return home to the U.S, he was placed in advanced or honors classes.
I love how age doesn’t matter when it comes to friendship at NIS!
Our three-year experience at NIS was extremely positive. It opened a whole new world for our son, who attended grades 4 through 6. He gained a new, more global perspective and developed friendships that we hope will last a lifetime. The excellent education he received continues to help him excel since re-entering public school in the US. In particular, the inquiry or project-based curriculum has helped him with time management and cooperative learning.
